  • A great view of the metro area.
  • Overall great mountain to visit if you are in the Denver area & you want to go to a nearby mountain. Although parts of the view are blocked by cellphone towers, the view is pretty great. Lots to do! (Cabrini Shrine, Boettcher Mansion, Buffalo Bill Museum & Grave, Lookout Mountain Nature Center, to name a few.) Totally recommend if you are craving the mountains.
  • Nice views. The museum was closed when I visited.
  • Beautiful place with amazing views. Many memories. Over looking the city is Stunning.
  • Great view here. People mistake Green Mountain (the name) for Look Out Mountain. This is the REAL Look out Mountain location.
